Do you guys leave them on the yard or rake them up... i know it doesn't take long to go back in the soil but was wondering what everyone else does with them.

The whole point is to leave them there to break up. It helps to get the good microbes in the soil to the top, it helps to break up the thatch layer. It takes very little time for the plugs to break down and wash into the yard.

I leave them. If a customer says anything, ask them " why would you want me to remove perfectly good soil from your lawn"?

I have never collected aeration plugs and never under any circumstances would.

Well, maybe I would given enough money.

we leave them...always
removing them is like removing the top soil. They're gone within 2 weeks or so
